Vegetarian Moussaka

Recipes for moussaka vary a lot between countries and places of origin. It is a dish popular around the Levant, Balkans, Turkey and Greece. Each country has its own way of preparing and serving it. My recipe below is not traditionally from one place or the other and I guess my version is a combination…

Roasted Cauliflower Casserole

The change in season also brings about a change in the way we eat. We look forward to more soups, curries, casseroles and other heartwarming dishes. For this dish, forget steamed cauliflower, which I personally find is tasteless, boring and often doesn’t smell very appetizing. Here, it is all about layers of flavour, which can…

Carrot, Chickpea & Tahini Salad

Light, fresh and easy to prepare meals are the way to go during the hot Summer days. I am always trying out new stuff and trying to diversify our choice of ingredients to keep things interesting and delightful and this recipe became a favourite over the past few months. This salad includes a combination of…

Aubergine & Red Lentil Curry

During our last 2 weeks travelling around Austria and visiting family in Germany, our diet was completely different than usual and included much more meat than we are used too.

Muesli Breakfast Cookies

Breakfast is often said to be the most important meal of the day. For some people, like my husband, the day won’t start if he does not have a proper breakfast first thing in the morning. On the other hand, others like me find it hard to eat as soon as they wake up. From…

Vegan Seaweed Burger

Vegan burgers can be as interesting as you want them to be. You can experiment with various beans, lentils and other legumes as a base and then add a flavour twist to them. We were recently out and about and passed by a food truck selling seaweed burgers. We were intrigued, unfortunately we had already…

Homemade Teriyaki Sauce

A quick stir-fry dish is always great for mid-week dinner at home when I am tight on time. Our fridge is always stocked with fresh vegetables or you always find a packet of frozen vegetables which are also suitable for such a dish in my freezer. A packet of tofu and a packet of soba…

Baked Samosas

A samosa is a pastry pocket with a spicy filling inside which is then deep fried or baked. They are stuffed either with meat or vegetables, and flavoured with a variety of spices. Depending on the region of origin, these may include garlic, ginger, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, mustard seeds, turmeric powder and chili powder….

Maltese Ross il-Forn – Baked rice

Ross il-forn in Maltese literally translates to baked rice. It is a popular rice dish in Malta and can be considered the ultimate Maltese comfort food. Although it takes some time to prepare the dish from scratch, there is nothing too complicated about it. Once at it, I like to make extra portions and freeze…

Feta & Jalapeño Cornbread

A while back, I posted a recipe for a simple Savoury Cornbread. It is a recipe that I made over and over again. It is great for packed lunches or a simple lunch on a lazy Saturday afternoon. It is easy to prepare and can be prepared in less than an hour. I have since…
